Militants kill six Turkey forces, attack US consulate

Turkish special police officers patrol in the street in the Sultanbeyli district of Istanbul after clashes with attackers on August 10, 2015Turkey was on Monday hit by a slew of deadly attacks, with six members of the security forces killed and the US consulate in Istanbul targeted in a shooting. The violence, which authorities blamed on Kurdish and Marxist radicals, comes as Ankara presses a two-pronged “anti-terror” offensive against Islamic State (IS) jihadists and Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) militants following a wave of attacks in the country. Monday’s attacks raised fresh concerns about security throughout Turkey in an escalating cycle of violence that has left a 2013 ceasefire agreed by the PKK in tatters.
